solid reasons to feel totally downbeat. first, i can't believe we're still focusing on this washington thing. for five years we've had to keep one eye on washington, one eye on wall street. i remember whole ten-year stretches i didn't care what was happening down there. at the moment, we can barely focus on anything but washington. the whole u.s. economy, your entire portfolio is hostage to two warring parties, demonstrating a level of partisanship that's been empirically measured to being the worst since 1860, the origins of the civil war. let's hope it doesn't take out that particular benchmark. we're witnessing a titanic struggle between those who are willing to rise above politics, and compromise to cut spending and increase taxes. yes, that's the actual compromise radical middle position as dave cote from honeywell says, and those who simply refuse to accept tax increases or entitlement cuts. given that the president's saying he campaigned and won on a platform of higher taxes for the wealthy and the republicans say they were elected because they pledged to behind the scenes power

of washington today as jim demint the informal leader of the senate tea party caucus announced his resignation. he is going to step down and into the director's chair at the conservative think tank the heritage foundation. that position not only allows him to shape the conservative agenda from the outside. it also comes with a pretty significant raise. demint now makes $174,000 a year. he's got an estimated net worth of $65,000. so he's actually the fourth poorest senator right now according to open secrets. but at heritage he's going to pull down a cool estimated million dollar salary. he told rush limbaugh that it's about principles not dollars, saying quote, i believe that i can do more good for the conservative movement outside of the senate. of course he has done a lot for the movement inside the senate because through his senate conservative fund he has cultivated a whole host of tea partyers including tea party senators like ron johnson, mike lee, marco rubio, pat toomey rand paul geoff flake, geoff fisher. perhaps his worst was backing tod

on stock holders they are facing something like the debt ceiling debacle. if the armed camps in washington don't disarm and agree to talk to each other in a serious way, and not just the bluster sessions that seem to be happening daily these days, which reminds me, do you remember -- do you remember the debt ceiling nightmare last year? going to those horrendous talks last summer, everybody felt very confident that the president and congress weren't really at loggerheads. market was almost at its high. pretty good, vix low. then like now, we heard that the discord was only political posturing. the stock market forwarded ahead, and the complacency was thick and more people worried about missing a move up rather than talks break down and we might actually default. every time we heard meetings between the president and the speaker like tonight, we figured we would hear mission accomplished the very next day. but we didn't. things got rancorous. ugly stalemate. the market dropped. we got a deal, but only after, not before, we had that hideous sell-off. makes sense. remember how unruly congress
washington to proclaim the protesters vandals. this about 50 # -- 50 # minutes. >> there is nothing so easy but to persuade people they are badly governed. those words were spoken by the brilliant 18th century massachusetts governor thomas hutchenson, and i'll tell you more about him later. let me tell you what else he said because the words hold true today as much as they did then in 1774. governor hutchenson said you can take the happiest and most comfortable people and use malicious, rhetorical skills to arouse popular discontent with their government, with their rulers, with everything around them, even themselves. this is one of the weaknesses, he said, these are his words "one of the weaknesses of human nature of which ambitious politicians make you to serve their purposes." i year before he uttered those words, a group of boston rebel rowsers convinced americans they were miserable, and to quote hitchenson again, "those who think they are misrabble are so despite real evidence to the contrary." now, i doubt if there's a single one of today's tea party patriots who knew what the origi
. it was a couple of days' ride from monticello to washington. he stopped at an inn and falls into a conversation with a fellow guest and they have a lovely, wide ranging discussion the next morning the other guest mr. jefferson is up and out and the other guest had never called his name and he said to the inn keeper who was that and he said who did you think it was? for a while and you knew so much about medicine i thought he was a doctor. then we talked about theology and he seemed as though he might be a priest though a shaky one. i thought he could have been certainly a farmer because of everything he knew and he said i thought you knew mr. jefferson. he was a master of so many different worlds and he was indefinitely curious at the time when human curiosity and the ability to lead us to our own destiny to fulfil in many ways our greatest potentials to discover, to explore was new in the world and this was the enlightened era. they had been a day before yesterday. for the first time ever, priestley and princely authority was in the dhaka, and jefferson was there to reap the harvest of the shi
the fiscal cliff showdown in washington, d.c.. so called plan b was introduced this morning by house speaker john boehner. proposal calls for tax hike on household that's make more than $1 million including small businesses however it didn't take long for the white thousands announce it's opposition to the plan. watch this. >> i mean alternative here, if you think bit in the so called plan b is makes no sense, there is an opportunity here to do something that has been set as a gel for a long time in washington reach a bipartisan compromise on significant deficit reductions on the order of $4 trillion when taking pieces of it and put them together. we're very close to being able to achieve that. and the president demonstrated obvious willingness to compromise and to move more than halfway. >> also, we're learning house majority leader said that the house will have the votes necessary to pass the plan b. but let's be clear. what is obvious is that president rejected the offer because it doesn't raise enough taxes but the problem that i, and other conservatives have with plan b is that it punis
in washington. did the nra, wayne lapierre hurt himself in friday by what can only be described as this rant? >> well, look, emotions across the country are running so high, aren't they, on this? many people i think would believe this is the 9/11 moment of the gun control issue, after this terrible, terrible massacre in newtown. so, the question is exactly as you frame it, the political oomph, if you will, behind each side. after all of this, will the nra be -- have enough political muscle power on capitol hill to push back successfully against any new legislation that might be coming or will they have damaged themselves? what is the calculation? will those who favor reinstating the assault of the -- the ban on assault weapons or other new gun control legislation, including those high-powered magazines, those -- those magazines that can carry tense and tense and tens of rounds, will they have the political oomph this time to enact new legislation? >> barbara starr in washington, thank you very much. >>> earlier, i spoke with state of the union anchor candy crowley about -- we talked about th

turn it into politics. and that is what appears to be the case right now in washington, d.c. >> but, sir, politics have a huge influence in this, as we look at the nra which is large lobbying group for gun manufacturers that has supported -- they support you. you have an "a" rating from them. you have voted yes on promoting gun sellers and manufacturers. and yes on the waiting periods taking waiting periods from 72 hours to one day yes on a trigger lock law in washington, d.c. how can you say politics are not involved with this when you look at a voting record right there. the nra gives you an "a" in allowing for people like an adam lanza to have access to the weapons he might have had. his mother might have had it legally, but we cannot police what his mother is doing inside that house to keep lanza away from those weapons. >> yes, and none of the policy issues which you just ticked off would have prevented adam lanza from doing this. and it is very sad that we want to cloud the issue by making nra the policy, as opposed to adam lan za and what triggers this. think of germany, germ
